Adventures in Paradise kayak and snorkel to Captain Cooks monument

Fantastic way to visit Captain Cooks monument… have been out there several times by boat.. this was so much better… easy kayak there.. went by really quickly as our guide TJ gave us a history lesson on the islands and Captain Cook. Fascinating! Plenty of time to snorkel. Must do adventure!

Both the tour guides were incredibly knowledgeable and so so helpful! My parents came along and were very nervous to go kayaking/snorkeling and they did everything to make them as comfortable as possible. They took care of us so well - helping clean off and bandage little wounds from the rocks (after our kayak flipped over), they even helped out a little kid who wasn't part of our group! Super positive the entire time! Can't say enough good things about this experience and the guides. We even got to see a baby shark while snorkeling.

What a great tour! The kayaking was not too strenuous. Our family of 4 (mom, dad, 2 teenage daughters) had a blast! First time snorkeling for our kids and they had no problem. Guides Caesar and Miles were so helpful and a wealth of information on nature and culture. Reef was amazing! Thank you!

The guides are great. The reef is beautiful and the sea kayaking is awesome. We were lucky and had a pod of dolphin swim with us on our way back. Highly recommended.

Kayaking to the Captain Cook monument. Very calming experience. JC and Adam were very friendly and willing to assist a rookie like me and family.
